Mecca is one of those stores that makes you gleefully happy. There are so many shiny things to play with, lotions to rub and pretty smells to spritz. It’s like Willy Wonka’s Factory… for adults. With beautiful magical creatures boasting exceptional customer service at your beck and call, unlike the weird, orange creatures Wonka had on offer.
My first ever Mecca purchase was the Naked Palette (I know, real original Kelly) and since then I’ve been an avid shopper, knowing that stepping into the doors or adding to cart will only bring happiness into my life. Less a fair few coins that’s for sure, but to me, it just proves that money really does buy happiness.
Which is why I was so giddy with excitement about pairing up with Mecca for this EPIC competition. Mecca and Showpo (what a duo, amirite) are giving YOU the chance to win the ultimate night out for you and your BFF.

Our girl Jordan came in for a shoot last week, and in eager anticipation for our competition, we got her to create her ‘go-to’ shoot makeup look with some of her fave Mecca prodz.
Primer – One of the smoothest, most beautiful primers on the market, Jordan started her look by prepping her base with HOURGLASS Veil Mineral Primer SPF 15.
Foundation – She’s OBSESSED with the HOURGLASS Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick as it’s really full-coverage and long-wearing, making it perfect for long shoots in front of the lens.
Concealer – For her under-eye area, Jordan loves the TOO FACED Born This Way Concealer as it creates the ultimate #iwokeuplikethis finish. The URBAN DECAY
Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer is in her beauty arsenal for popping over any blemishes or scarring.
Bronzer – Also a fan of NARS Bronzing Powder (who isn’t), Jord carries this with her all over the world. She warms up her face and uses it as the perfect contour shade.
Contour – The TOO FACED Cocoa Contour Kit is one of Jordan’s favourite products and she used the lighter colour to set her under-eye and the highlight shade to make the high points of her face pop.
Eyes – Jordi is a huge fan of the HOURGLASS Ambient® Lighting Bronzer as her transition crease shade and swears the pan lasts forever. She also used a pop of shimmer from the beautiful STILA Matte ‘n Metal Eyeshadow Palette for added effect.
Lashes – A few sweeps of TOO FACED Better Than Sex Mascara was all this Bambi-esque model needed, thanks to her commitment to extensions.
Brows – As famous for her brows as her long, lithe limbs and cheeky personality; Jordan swears by the KEVYN AUCOIN The Precision Brow Pencil for natural, full brows.
Blush – Bringing life and freshness to her pert apples, Jord loves the NARS Blush for it’s golden, pretty finish.
Lips – Not too fussy with her pout, a slick of NARS Lipstick in a soft shade is all she’ll sweep on for shoot days.
